USCIS Error !! Please help

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Someone please help me. I'm really upset at the approval letter I saw today. My Wife came to US immediately after our wedding and left back to UK 2 weeks after. The I-130 Approval form i received said it has been approved but shows that the beneficiary is living in US too. (the petition indicates that the person for whom you are petitioning is in United States and will apply for adjustment of status) I don't have this on the form when i sent it to them and I don't know why they think she's here when she's obviously in UK.

I'm really upset , what Can I do please. USCIS is really driving me crazy... Someone help please

They do this occasionally. You need to contact USCIS ASAP and correct the error by talking to an ISO (tier 2 human.) If not, the case will be sent to the NVR instead of NVC where they'll need to recall it and send it in the right direction.

This happened to us as well although we ended getting two NOA2s - one correct, the other saying we were adjusting status (we were one of the early transferees through NBC so the communications seemed to be a little off at the time). We just ignored the incorrect one and our file ended up at the NVC and given a LND case number without issue.

They're off anyway. My Senator's office liaison, who I had been working with because my file was slow to get to the NVC, forwarded me an e-mail she received from the Congressional liaison in USCIS Houston, saying apologetically that my I-130 was in a box of files that was inadvertently mis-shipped to the NRC (National Records Center, the offsite storage facility) instead of to the NVC, and they would retrieve the file back to Houston and forward it back to the NVC.

Catch is, the e-mail was dated April 18, and my file was actually received by the NVC on April 4. The very fact that I received an NVC case number and the names and birthdates were correct in their system meant NVC definitely got the file. Of course, once receiving the file, they initially assigned me a DBL (Dublin) case number instead of an LND (London) case number because there are evidently rabid Fenians in the NVC. oops8rh.gif

Its not intentional, the USCIS is just moronic. :)

Okay, I called USCIS on Monday (yesterday), I explained everything to a lady and she said it must have been typographical error and said they do make suchh mistake sometimes. She gave me a reference number and stated they will contact me within 30 days (usually a week) and send me corrected approval letter.

I asked if my file can been retrieved from NVR and she said the file will only go to NVC not NVR due to the fact that its a typo error. She advised I should write to NVC in a month to my approval. I wont wait till that though
